By popular demand, Friends return to Red House in Bexleyheath, the only house commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris, founder of the Arts & Crafts movement.

Morris and his wife Janey lived in the house between 1860-1865. During this time the house was at the centre of the pre-Raphaelite circle, with regular visitors including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and Ford Madox Brown.

On this tour, Friends enjoy a private tour of the house and explore the extensive collection of Morris designs and decorative schemes. A particular highlight for Friends is the recently discovered wall painting by Morris and his friends, which had been hidden for decades behind a fitted wardrobe and was uncovered and restored in 2013.
